    I was wondering if there are any plans to introduce a regular or frequent rank at 500+ posts before the elite rank at 1000+ posts.

    No, I'm not trying to create a 3 tiered ranking system so you could do Monty Python like "class" jokes (I look down on the user rank, but up on the Elite rank) - I just thought it would help relieve the hundrumness between 500-1000 posts.

    And Maybe we could create the 2nd rank and call it veteran and the elite rank old-timer? :D

    The last paragraph was a joke of course :)

    I think we should have new-comers called one-post midgets. Then after a while, regular midgets. Graduate to little people and so on/so forth.

    Yeah, but it isn't as posh looking like as a badge next to your name :)

    Aren't we do for a domain change? I'd love to reregister and get to be a one post wonder for the 4th time.

    Originally the Elite badge was given out to people who had helped with the legacy project, and those who had been around a while and not based on posts. :)

    I say just leave it all as it is. If you provide vetran at 500 posts.. eventually someone will come along and say we should have some other badge/rank at 250 posts.. and so on..

    Make it a policy now that it won't happen.. now or later - post it in the rules (and make it against the rules to ask again) and not bother with it ever again.

    I agree, there needs to be something that sets the active members from the non actives.
